I’ve been thinking a lot about words and how they affect conversations lately.

How do the things I say sound?

Does the tone and pitch decide how or who understands what I’m saying?

Are some of the things I say better understood by some people than others?

And how does the weight they carry impact others?

How is what I’m saying affecting my conversations and how does that vary from person to person?

If words are truly heavy, shouldn’t we spend more time getting them right?

I’m paying more attention now, not to just the words but also to the sounds, the tones, and the pitches. This way my responses will be the right ones and be more valuable in turn.
